Btw.. Ups or FedEx doesn't want the USPS business. They know they can't do it cheaper. They have the USPS deliver most of their packages to rural communities..

Being the National Whistleblower (USSC 99-565 & supplement) under economic oppression who continues to expose the Collusion / Terrorism responsible for "Goin Postal" (murderbyproxy) the total destruction of entire American Postal Families. Cointelpro tactics (Terrorism - coercion / collusion / corruption / subversion / sabotage / subterfuge / extortion / fraud / murder-suicide) responsible for the Postal Holocaust now being used in the American Holocaust. Terminal Injustice by Congressional, Federal, State and local law enforcement personnel to aide the deficit / death fix it. Delay and deny til you die tactics. Those sworn to service and protect using subversive activities (treason) for personal gain. The National Goal in Executive Order 12871 was to reduce government (we the people / veterans / people the govt owe) and government spending (reduce government expenses, no liabilities) this amounted to no justice /jesus. god - government of deceivers satan's immaculate deception exposed. If you are unable to comprehend this your are a deceiver. Understand the effects of the godass which has been spread like the Thyphoid Mary. god being grand OLE deceit / satan's immaculate deception / governing oppressive dis ease and a$$ being the American Stockholm Syndrome (Economic Oppression). If it could happen to Jaycee Lee Dugard, why not you?

YHVH suspends mercy in response to god (government of deceivers) suspension of inalienable rights (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) in the American Holocaust (genocide). Mongoose Protocol.

Let's close the curtains of this useless agency known as the Postal 'service'. No service just a huge drain on a depressed economy caused by BHO and his crew of libtards.

Sending a piece of mail cross country for 45 cents and paying union scale to do it is what sunk the postal service.

Read the Washington Post article a few posts above. That should help you better understand the situation.

Close the SOB down, Union postal workers are the lazy ist people on the planet
There is something wrong with every one of them.

Yeah, buddy... That's why I went to work at the USPS as a letter carrier 29 years ago. I'm just plain lazier than dirt. I used to work at a lawn mower factory for 1/3 less pay assembling mowers inside a building, and I figured it would be a lot easier walking about 12 miles a day 5 - 6 days a week loaded down with mail in all kinds of hot and cold weather delivering to about 500 - 700 addresses daily depending upon the route. You should give it a try. Truth is, most of you clods who hate us postal employees so much are either too lazy to work anyplace at all, too stupid, have too many arrests, felonies, or traffic violations, and so the USPS would never hire someone like you.

The USPS needs a 10 Billion bail out and is crying to congress. These sloths earn an average of 83K per year to mis-deliver your mail and take off every damn time some dead president has a birthday and then then cry and whine about how hard they work. Get screwed you maggot leeches as your azzes need a boot put in it and shut down for good. Then it's move on to the other wasteful agencies that suck the taxpayer dry like the IRS, EPA, EEOC, FTC, FDA, SEC, the list goes on and on for these overpaid, underworked Shytheads.
